This property was filthy! Cobwebs & roaches
First of all I had a terrible time trying to find this property because the address was not well visible from the main road. I had to call the owner to assist me in finding the house. He opened the door & left. As we walked inside right away I noticed that the floors we dirty then as I approached the kitchen area I saw that they attempted to make the falling apart table look nice. However, the dishes on the table were dirty, including the glasses. The table was dirty and the entire kitchen was filthy. There was food left in the refrigerator from..I assume the last guest? I needed to use the kitchen to prepare food for a birthday get together but it was so dirty it made me sick! I got a pan out & it had a dead roach in it. I went looking for mixing bowls & there were cobwebs & dead bugs & rat droppings in every cabinet. The refrigerator was filthy the microwave was filthy the toilets were disgusting!
I was afraid to sleep in the beds. There were cobwebs on the headboards. I have used VRBO quite a few times & never had a problem but this time it took the cake! Unbelievable that an owner of a property would actually charge someone money to sleep in filth and I had to wash each dish & silverware prior to use & I even had to sweep the floor & clean the toilet. Beware!!
